Same-sex relationships are illegal in Dubai and are, officially, not tolerated. Alerted to the gay event by the thousands of publicity flyers distributed by the partys organizers, local authorities closed the club for “violating Islamic laws and indulging in immoral activities”. It's one of the many things in Dubai: everyone knows about it, but nobody makes it modern wedding venues “official”. But anyway the gay scene is up and happening around many nightclubs in the city. The censor in internet sites in Dubai is pretty tough. While Etisalat has blocked many gay web sites, some of the paid message boards are easily accessible. Dubais first publicly advertised gay club night the Diamond clubs gay “Fluff Night” featured a transvestite DJ from Birmingham, England, and a “best-dressed transvestite” contest showed example of importance being “not official”.
